    My Goffins did the same thing I started useing some new
    lotion and he didn't like it. Now that I stopped useing it
    he grew all his feathers back in and looks beautiful!!! Are
    you using anything new like perfume, air freshners, lotion
    new makeup anything you get on your hands and then touch him.
    My Goffins is 2 now and it took me about 6 months to figure
    it out but I was glad I did. Good Luck!!! Rosie
